line of attack on governor romney. calling him dishonest and untruthful and a flat-out liar. welcome, everybody, i am megyn kelly. one website suggesting that the president and his top advisors came up with an idea and a strategy session the next morning. that idea would be to paint mr. romney is a flat-out liar. governor romney, of course, is experiencing polling momentum, and he is trying to build upon that with a foreign policy speech that he gave at the virginia military institute just an hour ago. president obama come in the meantime is in california on a campaign tour. the last 72 hours come we have seen a growing tide of political ads and remarks from campaign officials and surrogates with one central theme. mitt romney is a liar. here is a sample. >> are you saying that governor romney lied or was dishonest? >> yes, i think he was dishonest am absolutely. >> many people are pointing out what a liar mitt romney is. if he was talking are speaking last night, he was lying. >> you know, i think that we expected an aggressive debater to show up last night. we did not expect an agg
%. governor romney is ahead 49%, he was shown behind to in florida and now he is ahead to in florida. the state of virginia, 49 to 48%. big news that is just breaking right now. that is where he, i should say, racked up another big story today. the september jobs report. the labor department says that 114,000 jobs were created last month, but the unemployment rate sharply declining to 7.8%. that is the lowest number in nearly four years. certainly some welcome news for team obama. a liberal economist cautioned that it is almost certainly a statistical fluke. john roberts is alive and st. petersburg, florida, where he will be reporting today. >> virginia has been hit hard by job losses in the coal industry. saying that the only reason why the unemployment dropped from 8.2% up to 7.8% is because so many people has dropped out of the work force. if it was a real number, it would probably be more like 11.5%. >> when i am president, the unemployment rate is going to come out, not because people are giving up and jumping out of the workforce, but because we are creating more jobs. i will c
dates call serious hits he took last night from governor romney in the big debate. well tomorrow to "america live." back in new york, folks i'm megyn kelly. a look back now in denver, colorado where a fired up barack obama has just finished this rally. he was going off on governor romney in that campaign appearance, and we heard a very different-sounding barack obama at this rally. it comes after the president's top campaign advisers, hour after hour hit the air waves clearly trying to reframe the presidential's debate performs answer. political observers said he looked irritated, annoyed and was unhappy to be on the stage while mitt romney sounded presidential. thousand they try to make the argument that governor romney only won last night because he lied. here is the president moments ago. >> we also had our first debate last night. when i got onto the stage i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. [laughter] >> but it couldn't have been mitt romney, because the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in
in rasmussen's daily tracking poll. and that candidate is governor mitt romney. he's ahead 50-46 percentage points over -- that's four percentage points over president obama, and with the clock ticking down until voters head to the polls, every minute, every second on the campaign trail could be critical. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor and host of "power play" on foxnews.com live. chris, hello from dallas. >> hi, megyn. meg and let's -- i'm still thinking about boca even though i've maneuvered over to -- moved over to dallas. [laughter] but these two candidates are eyes on the road. they are all about what's over the next two weeks and ground game. your thoughts on where we go in the wake of last night from here. >> well, here's the deal, even if the president can claim a victory inside the debate winning with some focus groups, not others, even if he can say that, he didn't achieve his objective, and the objective last night was to use the last remaining scheduled moment to reset an election that he's losing, that he's on his way to lose, that he missed his opportu
for the president when it comes to who would handle egypt better. slowed a slight edge -- stronger edge to romney and who would handle china better and get tough on trade with china the issue of libya seems to be the thing that narrowed this gap from 11-point advantage to barack obama to 4-point advantage. while it was somewhat of a debacle the other night, one person said one and the other person challenged back and forth and the moderator tried to stop it and everyone wound up confused at the end they will have a whole 90 minutes to discuss libya and other issues on monday. >> instead of the moderator moving on bob scheffer is going to be expected to get to the bottom of it and ask the president a lot of questions. the president has one response, which is to accuse mitt romney of political opportunism for the libya attack and politicize the issue. that is one note that you can sound in a debate. on foreign policy the president will have to answer questions who knew what when, how high up in the administration, how come nobody caught this? how come they were not prepared. how come requests for a
debate in boca raton, florida. the pew research center releases a new poll showing governor mitt romney slowing a huge gap over the past few weeks picking up 11 points on the issue of foreign policy. who would make good decision -gs. good decisions. and foreign policy is the focus of that final debate. chris style wart is our fox news digital analyst and host of fox news. the lead president obama had has plummeted 11 points. he had a 15-point advantage in this department in september, and now take a look at it. it is a four-point advantage for him. is that all because of libya? >> well, it would certainly seem to be that way, and it's a double problem for the president, one, there is the basic fact, and the fact that the administration was hoping to avoid with their public response, which was being held accountable for whatever failures at whatever level lead to this successful attack by islamists militants on a u.s. outpost on the anniversary of september 11th. that was never going to be a good thing or help the president's status on foreign policy with voters. and the handling of it,
and governor romney and how this became a debate that some political analysts are now calling a must-win for the president. welcome to "america live" where we are today live from lynn university in boca raton, florida. the site of it all. i'm megyn kelly. in eight hours the president and the republican challenger go head to head on this stage to face off on foreign policy. that topic could not be any hotter right now with new fallout almost every day from the administration's changing response to the terror attack in libya that killed our ambassador and three other americans a little more than a month ago. joining us now to explain what to watch for and why it matters, chris stirewalt, our fox news digital politics editor and host of "power play" on foxnews.com along with marc thiessen, who's a washington post columnist and a former george w. bush speech writer. gentlemen, welcome to lynn university. here's the interesting thing i saw, stirewalt, in preparation for this debate. the president was 15 points up in the polls on foreign policy prior to debate number one in denver. now com
. taking a look at the front page of today's "des moines register." a split page showing governor romney on the right, president obama on the left. look at the different messaging there. the headline very specific. >> in the final weeks of this election, he is counting on you for getting that his policies are not going to work. he is hoping you won't remember and he will come down with a case of what we call "rom-nesia." [cheers] [applause] megyn: so what does this mean in the final days? chris stirewalt is host of "power play" and a fox news correspondent. what do you think? the headline on the "des moines register" says a lot. reporter: the president took a huge risk on running an intensely negative campaign as an incumbent gray that. that is generally not one incumbent presidents do. they made a decision over six or seven months as to what has been shorthanded as the kill romney strategy. it works to some good effect and then romney had the first debate. he was different than what had been prescribed in the ads and he started to rise. now you see the president with no choice but to in
that enthusiasm is building for governor mitt romney's white house bid. welcome to "america live," everyone, i'm megyn kelly. right now the governor's in the battleground state of iowa about to hold a rally. his crowds have been growing, and voter excitement building according to the pollsters. a new politico poll finds more republicans than democrats now say they are extremely likely to vote in this election by a margin of 85-75%, 10-point margin. only three weeks ago the number was 81-78% in favor of the democrats, that is a 13-point swing in romney's favor in three weeks' time. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor and host of "power play" on fox foxnews.com live. is that all about the debate? >> well, yes and no. it's also in part that when the previous poll was taken, republicans were feeling crabby about mitt romney, so that was art potentially low maybe for the -- artificially low maybe for the republicans. the truth is, and we've known this really since 2010, since before the 2010 election, republican intensity and enthusiasm continues to be very, very high. now, demo
the president 74 electoral votes ahead of governor romney. when you looked at how it's likely to turn out in terms of which way states were leaning they used the polls to calculate at that point that the president had 265 votes, just about locked up, compared to just 191 for governor romney. you need 270 to win. fast forward to today, and we see the predicted 74-vote gap has shrunk to a mere 10 votes, and with the momentum now going to the former governor of massachusetts it is hard to imagine how there could be more on the line for these two men tomorrow night at the next presidential debate. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital editor and host of "fox news live." i know you don't say i told you so. but you came on this broadcast in the face of all these polls for weeks and pundits i should add who were saying, it's over, it's over, barack obama has this race sewn, don't bother watching for the next six weeks or eight weeks, oh, where is he going. >> i'm here, coming back. >> very unceremonious of your camera machine as i'm giving you a moment of glory. >> we can't just have nice thin
. >> fox news alert from the campaign trail. a brand-new rasmussen poll showing governor mitt romney now leaving president obama among likely voters in the critical battleground state of ohio. this is a first in this race. it is a significant shift from just a week ago when the president governor romney were tied at 40%. in most polls, the president had been leading governor romney in ohio. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital editor and also the host of the show "power play." chris, some events are being canceled because they are not being affected by hurricane sandy, but how many times have we talked about the likely voter polls, talking about how it will really matter or not romney loses ohio. no republican has ever won the white house without it. rasmussen came out with a poll showing that governor romney is taking the lead their. >> well, yes, here is the thing. we have seen all along that mitt romney could not quite close in ohio and he has continued to do better in places like florida and virginia. ohio has posed a difficulty, he couldn't close the gap with the president. what
their neighbors. back to you. megyn: thank you. on the campaign trail mitt romney's team suddenly buying ad time in three states that were thought to be basically a lock for the president. are there suddenly new opportunities opening up for the republican candidate? chris stirewalt joins us next. a fight over a facebook group involving free speech. we'll tell you what it has to do with navy seals and the commander-in-chief and why they say he is leaving them out to dry. and the aftermath of hurricane sandy, some people driving 50 miles for one tank of gas. >> if you drive around in circles you'll use gas -- and just sitting here i burnt five gallons of gas so i got out with the can -- from jammin' jerk chicken, to creamy gouda bisque. see what's new from campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. to bring you a low-priced medicare prescription drug plan. ♪ with a low national plan premium... ♪ ...and copays as low as one dollar... ♪ ...saving on your medicare prescriptions is easy. ♪ so you're free to focus on the things that really matter. call humana at 1-800-808-4003. or go twalmart.c
when president obama and governor romney go head to head a little more than 48 hours from right now. welcome to "america live," everyone, i'm megyn kelly. a new survey of likely voters finds that almost one in five say that they can still be swayed to vote for either candidate here. and some of those wavering voters say they are waiting for these debates to help them decide. the headline here according to bloomberg, about 18% of the electorate is, quote, persuadable, and that is a big number considering that early voting has already begun. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor and host of "power play" on foxnews.com. so the campaigns have got to see that, in particular the romney camp, as good news, chris, since he is shown as trail anything a lot of these swing state polls as well. >> well, certainly it's not good news if you're president obama. if that's true, if you really have 18% persuadable voters, this comes after fife months -- five months of the most stained, negative attack, most personal barrage against a candidate by an incumbent president that we've ev
for this. none. >> the focus at the romney press availability, his overnight press release. >> governor romney, do you think, though, coming so soon after the events really have unfolded overnight was appropriate to be weighing in on this as this crisis is unfolding in realtime? >> the white house, also, issued a statement saying it tried to distance itself from those comments and said they were not reflecting of their view ares. i had the exact same reaction. >> the rose garden minutes later -- >> we will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. >> by this point, according to sources, the u.s. intelligence community already knows the attack was a terrorist act, has listed it as such internally to unlock resources and believes it was al-qaeda or al-qaeda-linked groups in libya. libya. three hours, president obama sits down with "60 minutes." >> i think it was absolutely the right thing for us to do to align ourselves with democracy, universal rights, a notion that people have to be able to participate in their own governance. but i was pretty certai
's debate. more importantly, this is a stage where president obama and governor mitt romney will hopefully define their positions on the key domestic issues facing our nation. that's what's on the agenda for this debate tonight; jobs, the economy, health care. but first, a new distraction for the obama campaign during a critical week. it comes in the form of a video released by "the daily caller" of then-presidential candidate barack obama back in 2007. in it he speaks to a group mostly made up of black pastors. his speech got some coverage at the time he delivered it, but his prepared remarks did not include some of the off-the-cuff, off-prompter moments, if you will, alluding to alleged racism to hurricane katrina and spending decisions made by our elected leaders. our chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel is live in washington with more. mike? >> reporter: hi, megyn. the tone has attracted some attention with then-candidate obama sounding different as he spoke to a large group of african-american religious leaders in virginia. one major topic was mr. obama trying to contrast th
to the romney side. this development raises the stakes even higher for president obama and governor romney heading into next tuesday's town hall debate. that will be in long island. chris stirewalt is our digital politics editor. i want to get to the debate, but i have to start with this. when you look at the way the electoral map goes, it's like wisconsin and michigan and pennsylvania -- is pennsylvania back in play now? is that real? >> sure, it is real. what you are seeing is this big search for governor romney. the way that you put it is right. mitt romney can't get elected without ohio. the sentence is now that iraq obama can't win without pennsylvania. it is hard to imagine a path to victory for him. the change in this map, an amount fully illustrate that, a search could be nothing if it doesn't really manifest itself in the battleground states, and here are the blue states. since 1988, around towards mitt romney, he has to be concerned in chicago. megyn: i'll ask you as we have seen the polls tighten day after day since that debate in denver. is this about the debate? or is it about
will be in a town hall format. this comes showing the governor romney is surging. in swing states, republican nominee mitt romney is virtually tied now with president obama, 48% to 49%, according to than usa today gallup poll. the good news is for the president in the non-battleground states, but this latest development in the swing states is highly significant. because the president, overwhelmingly won the nobel back in 2008 and critical states like ohio, it is what put him over the top or it already, team obama is slamming the gallup poll results. saying that the usa today results showing him tide in battleground states is an extreme outlier. defying the trend seen in every other battleground and national poll. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor and host of "power play." they shut this down as the extreme outlier. the we talked recently about pew research poll showing president obama losing his lead with women, and down to a 47 tie with mitt romney when it comes to likely voters. so which is it? is it an extreme right outlier or is it not. reporter: in order spends on w
as the romney/ryan ticket today opens up its biggest lead of in this entire election. the republicans leading by a full point now i in the real clear politics average of all polls, that's the first time that's happened since mitt romney secured the nomination. you can see the course of the last year with the blue line for president obama and the red line for mitt romney. and you can bet that this means new pressure for the vice president going into tonight. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor and host of "power play" on foxnews.com live. when i prepared for this event today, chris, the daytime show now and the prime time coverage later, the experts told me in the materials i read that the vice presidential debates never really move the election that much, the most it's moved is three points. and i said to myself, three points is a lot in an election like this one. >> three points is a lot when you have a one-point gap, megyn. first, let me say, you are in a beautiful place in america, you are in a wonderful spot, and it's going to be a great fisticuffs tonight, so i'm very

for mitt romney on this one since he is the outsider and hasn't been in office and wasn't part of make thag debt and president obama has over seen in fact the unprecedented increase in size of the federal debt, and as a matter of fact in talking to senior people from romney land that is exactly what mitt romney means to do when he gets on that debate stage in denver, is go off the president not just on what romney says are ineffectual policies like the president's healthcare law and stimulus packages, but the cost of those policies as compared to romney's own perscriptions that call for smaller less expensive government. for the president what he's going to try to do is say look, maybe things aren't so great but it is partly the fault of george w. bush and the republicans who were in office prior to the democrats taking control in 2009, so we need time to fix it, and by the way, the president will also say that he wants to increase taxes on people like mitt romney to help pay down some of that debt. >> reporter: we just put of that graphic there showing the $16 trillion of debt and there ar
